“Beasts of No Nation” could be a history making awards player

Over the weekend, cinema goers as well as Netflix subscribers were both given access to one of the year’s more intriguing awards contenders. In some ways, the impending Oscar campaign for Beasts of No Nation is unlike any that we’ve ever seen before. Beyond just being a dark film from[...]

The Hollywood Film Awards Series: James Corden is the HFA host, but who will be Oscar’s?

With the recent announcement that James Corden was going to be the host of the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards, I was struck by two notions. One was that it was a perfect reason to have another installment in the Hollywood Film Awards Series that we’ve been doing here, but[...]

Hollywood Contenders: Steve Jobs Didn’t Work

By Michael Russnow In his latest work, Steve Jobs, the cringing for me started at the outset with his typical outpouring of clever sentences that in a better dramatist’s hand might lead to dazzling repartee. However, the key word is dramatist, the ability to fashion together plots and conversation that compel[...]

A first crack at Golden Globe predictions

Usually, the run up to a new Steven Spielberg film is a bit longer and more buzzed about than the one currently for Bridge of Spies. Even from the moment it was first announced as being his latest collaboration with Tom Hanks, things moved quickly and a bit under the[...]

“Truth” seeks to be a second Oscar vehicle for Cate Blanchett

In some ways, the film Truth is the “other” film in this year’s awards race, which can be either a blessing or a curse, depending on the situation. It’s the “other” Cate Blanchett Oscar player besides Carol, and the “other” journalism tale this season besides Spotlight. I’ll have plenty more[...]

Will “Star Wars” Awaken a Force within the Sound Editing race?

What does a lightsaber sound like? Or a storm on Mars? Or Q’s latest gadget? Well we don’t know. Rather, films’ sound effects editors use their ingenuity to create these artificial sounds, to be integrated into a film’s soundtrack. The Academy Award for Best Sound Editing rewards the supervising sound[...]

The Hollywood Film Awards Series: Ridley Scott is honored…could Oscar be next?

Earlier today, another big honoree was announced for the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards, and that was none other than Ridley Scott. The legendary director is being honored for his work on The Martian, so not only is that a great excuse for me to rave about that film once[...]
